When the five Schwartz children tragically lost both parents in three years, their aunt Shannon Alford learned the true meaning of living worship. With three kids of their own, Shannon and her husband, Sion, became the guardians of all five grieving children, leaving their home bursting at the seams with eight kids between the ages of five and fifteen.
Join the Alford-Schwartz family as they relive their journey of healing and divine provision. Complete with inspirational words from each precious child, 8 Is Enough will touch your heart and remind you that no matter what you are facing, God will make all things work together for your good.
Shannon Alford serves on the worship team at Gateway Church in Southlake, Texas, where her husband, Sion, is an executive worship pastor. They minister on the Gateway worship team and write songs for the churchs nationally released worship CDs, and have traveled the world teaching on praise and worship. Shannon and Sion have been married for twenty years and are blessed to have eight children, ages eight to eighteen. They reside in Dallas, Texas.
"What a precious book. It was amazing to watch the Alford family through what looked to be like an overwhelming journey…This book will be such a blessing to you as you read her journey of heartache, grace and motherhood."
